Course - Chemistry 216 - The Synthesis and Characterization of Carbonyl Compounds
CHEM 216 builds on the experimental approach started in CHEM 211. Students participate in planning exactly what they are going to do in the laboratory by being given general goals and directions that have to be adapted to fit the specific project they will be working on. They use microscale equipment, which requires them to develop manual dexterity and care in working in the laboratory. They also evaluate the results of their experiments by checking for identity and purity using various chromatographic and spectroscopic methods.
This course is part of the 2011-2013 MELO 3D project, supported by an LSA Instructional Technology Committee New Initiatives/New Infrastructure grant.
